Hello all. Has anybody tried to make any cd lable using the light scribe software? My burner recently died and I got a deal on a lightscribe enabled burner. I have been messing around with it and it's kinda fun. Just wanted to know if any of you have done this or have any pics to post of them.

The burner was only 35 bucks and the blanks are about 12 bucks for a 50 pack. I was trying to make back up copies of my Fillmore west box set. I'll try uploading some pics

Hey! Those loook great! How did you put that together--with some little program? IE, pics, song titles...I are an idiot, recall (I have spent all morning talking about raccoons and beards for crying outloud).

Thanks. Well there are a couple of different program to use. The one that I use is the Nero label software. I created the cd image in Photoshop and then burned it on with Nero. They do take a while. About 28 minutes per disc. I like doing these because it doesn't use ink. The direct cd printers use so much ink. Gets way too expensive. No ink involved with these. The only bad thing is that they are monochromatic, but on the other had it does give them a classy look.

Looks great, I agree...color-smulor. However, you unfortunately linked at least two steps together, even mentioning a program I have heard of, and then implying such effort was transfered, brain went numb...you get the idea.

But, some day I may try it!

I have used it for a project with my daughter - a rather simple text only graphic. Having a good bit of digital artwork experience, I may try to do something fancier in the future. It does take a while for the laser to etch the design onto the label.

You have to use "LightScribe" formatted discs which are more expensive than normal CDRs- I used Memorex - and I found that my burner wouldn't recognize some of the new discs (they still worked for the music side) but I don't really know if this had to do with something else besides the discs themselves. Have fun and ggod luck!

Was always worried I wouldn't do it "right" and such, but would love to know if it's 1) easy, and 2) cheap (don't you have to have those "plain white" CDs or some such?).

Any insights yet?

Would be great to label up the whole DEAD CD collection with nicely done labels rather than my little sharpie and the now dismissed fears of sharpie damage...
